Four Possible Shark Bites In Myrtle Beach Thursday

Lifeguards in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina are on alert after four people were bitten by what may have been a shark.

Myrtle Beach police said just before 1:30 Thursday afternoon, four people were bitten by something in the ocean. A doctor or shark expert would have to confirm whether it was in fact a shark that attacked the swimmers.

Police said all of the victims were taken to a hospital for treatment. Three were taken by ambulance and the fourth by car.

Family and friends of one victim, 16-year-old Jordon Garosalo from Canton, Ohio, said the doctor who treated his bite believes that - based on the tooth pattern on his foot -the wound was inflicted by a shark.
